This is what happens when Bangladeshi kids want a break from making our clothes.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll repeat it: own less stuff. I swear it will make your life better.
Use your money to help others and to be something, not have something.
Buy experiences to shape you. Take road trips. Give to a charity.
More closely related to this image: I had some tough decisions to make with the production of Superfight. The established printers were all in China, behind a wall of, well, China. Sure, I could print in the US if I wanted to sell the game at a loss. But that would only ensure that the game never existed beyond Kickstarter, and I didn’t want to sell it for five hundred dollars.
So I kept looking for a more transparent production facility, and finally found one in India. I asked about the working conditions and facilities, and was sent videos of the production line. Not a kid in sight, and everyone looked business casual and safe.
So I went with them, despite the cost difference.
Then cut proceeds out to go to Futures without Violence (seriously, if you’re looking for a charity, this one is amazing).
There just isn’t any point in making money to get more things for yourself. Turn on the news or pick up a tabloid and tell me I’m wrong.
Helping people is how you feed that monkey, not buying another hundred dollar tee shirt.
This weekend, NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden said that more leaks were coming and they “couldn’t be stopped”. Today, The Guardian ran a story based on information from Snowden that the UK GCHQ (Government Communication Headquarters), Britain’s NSA, set up extensive electronic surveillance, wiretapping and other espionage directed at Britain’s allies during the 2009 G20 Summit in London.
The U.S. House of Representatives voted again Thursday to allow the indefinite military detention of Americans, blocking an amendment that would have barred the possibility.
Waaaaaaaait, wait, wait, wait. So we won’t allow even the most reasonable amount of what could possibly be construed as “gun control” because we have to keep our guns to protect ourselves from a government we may need to overthrow…
…but we’re all okay with them being able to throw every single one of us into military detention, for an indefinite amount of time? How are we going to overthrow them with our guns from jail, again?
